I guess this is a sort of belated I’m new here sort of thing. I am heavily interested in meditation, and expansion of consciousness, and low and behold, LD’s fit right into this category. Right now I am doing heavy conceptual work about the structure of the universe, subtle energies, how electromagnetic fields(and subtle energetic fields, i.e. torsion fields) change nature of quarks, and raise their oscillatory frequency. I have made a couple podcasts, that are free, at moto.podomatic.com that explains a little about this, and am going to go into more depth in later podcasts. I decided I was to be a scientist at the age of 5, and 8 my main work I decided was to study the human psyche. And so now I am still continuing that study . Hehe, 11 years in and I have gone much, however, it is mostly conceptual as it is easier to deal with. I am a great visualizer, and am doing well with VILD’s, as I confused them with WILD’s(didn’t know that you didn’t have to see anything to enter the dreamstate, although sometimes you do have the morphing hypnogogic hallucinations at first). My area of expertise is NOT dreams, but rather the ability to translate conceptual knowledge into english so that it can be relayed efficiently. This conceptual knowledge I download from the “Akashkic records” or what I refer to as the CCC, Collective, Cosmic, Consciousness. Or an easier term GOD. However, that is more philisophic in nature rather than scientific which is why I tend to avoid it because it activates different concepts in different people. So I’m going to stick with CCC. In any case, so far I have had 2 VILD’s, 1 WILD, 1DILD, and this is just since I joined this forum in the last 3 weeks or so. Before this, what really got me interested in the dream world(because before this I was only mildly interested, and did expansions of consciousness and awareness in the waking via concentration, breathing techniques, and certain focusing, which has given me great mental prowess, and other powers ) was a dream in which I was HIGHLY lucid, spontaneously. Those in my book are the best. A sword appeared on my hip, katana style, and I knew it was used for slicing open dimensions. This was 3 years ago, but I remember it clear as day to this day. This has queued me on to a bunch of topics, one Tibetan Dream Yoga. We are not the first in this quest. But anyways, theres my intro, and much more to come. Namaste, and continue pioneering !!!
